Now, I am not a hoarder by any stretch, but I was just working on a party for a client and found myself leafing through Vogue Australia (the best!) Entertaining‘s – wait for it – February 1998 issue! Most large newsstands with international issues in large cities carry this most amazing of the glossies. The food, the photography, the interiors – gosh, I’ve let my secret out. And because Oz is the opposite of America in weather – they are now approaching Spring – I get a sneak peek of trending before the seasons!
Anyway, I found the most amazing recipe for end of summer here in the States that I wanted to share with our readers. It’s a Portuguese dish called acorda – a cold bread and vegetable soup (rather like the Tuscan Panzanella) with lobster. I am thinking of serving it as the first course at a June wedding I’m doing on a farm!
Here’s a link to a good recipe – you can add all sorts of shellfish, like a cioppino, or stick to just lobster. And yes, a lovely Vinho Verde is just the ticket! I would totally be an etiquette “don’t” and take a white linen napkin, tuck it into my shirt and get down!
